West Salem Historical Society

West Salem, WI is a small, friendly community that is big on history, with several homes listed on the National Register of Historic places. Founded in 1851, West Salem is the birthplace and home of the Pulitzer Prize winning author Hamlin Garland. An annual event, Garland Days, held each September, celebrates the life of this community’s favorite son.

Two historic homes in West Salem, share an unusual octagonal shape. Other historic homes and structures throughout the community help to add to the visual charm of West Salem.

The Hamlin Garland Homestead, is open for tours from Memorial Day to Labor Day.

Admission is $1.00 for adults, .50 for children, or $2.50 maximum per family.
